I was 8 weeks when I started spotting. A week later (last Monday), my Dr. called me in and saw a "bad" u/s, way too small a sac, and no heartbeat. Subsequent blood tests showed my levels dropped, and I decided to m/c naturally. That started on Friday 6/15. My cramps and heavy bleeding started yesterday at work. I'm home today, but could go in now, the pain meds have kicked in, but now the mental toll is worse than the physical and I doubt I'll be productive. This was my 2nd m/c, the first occurred in Feb.
Thanks to some of those on the other boards (jan 2008, PAL), I learned of this board, although I couldn't even deal with looking at it until today.
My DH is sweet, but I don't think he really understands. Plus, he doesn't seem to be grieving at all. To him, esp. since we m/c'ed in feb., this pregnancy was a wait and see. I felt like that too, but it was still a part of me and I guess that kept me from being entirely clinical. A part of me is upset that he doesn't seem to be feeling bad about the loss. He is, but only in the context of the pain I'm in (mental and physical). He literally says stuff like, "I'm so sorry for you". What about YOU - don't you care??? Anyway, I'll stop rambling. Obviously he is caring and loving, but I can't help getting emotional about things like this.
Thanks for a place to unload. Glad that this board exists, though sad that it's needed.
